Replication Monitor Crashing with SSMS 17.8.1

I installed SQL Server Management Studio 17.8.1 last night. This is from the About box:

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 14.0.17277.0
Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 14.0.1016.262
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 10.0.16299.15
Microsoft MSXML 3.0 4.0 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.11.16299.0
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.30319.42000
Operating System 6.3.16299

This build has broken Replication Monitor. When I go to review the details of (for example) Distribution Agent Job Properties, it will crash with "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AppLocal, Version=14.0.0.0"..... The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference."

    I confirmed that "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\140\Tools\Binn\ManagementStudio\Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AppLocal.dll" exists on my machine.

    It does.

    Could you confirm that does not exist on your machine?

    I was also asked to share "%TEMP%\SSMSSetup".

    I did. I ZIP'd that and the DLL to my public folder in my OneDrive.
